How to Read the Tarot
Begin by brewing a cup of tea,
a nervine, lemon balm or chamomile,
this is after all, your future.
A reading at the dark of the moon is best,
before the night creatures crawl
and bad humours fill the air.
Pick a circular deck, with a fairy-tale motif,
and no reversals.
Hold a question in your heart,
shuffle the cards and place them on the table.
Choose only two.
Like the ancient Israelites,
these are your seer stones, Urim and Thumimm,
black and white, yes or no.
Isn't that all you were asking?
A morning glory sky breaks, pleasure in this dawn.
October my birthday month, stretches into light.
Mangrove leaves excrete salt tears,but my eyes are dry.
Come follow I am a Queen,drink of your self-worth.
Author's note: My birthday is October 31, and I want my birthday month to slow and spiral to infinity.
Japanese form: Imayo--
Pholarchos Tarot--Queen of Spirals--Taste the flavor of your own self-worth.
You cannot separate experiment
My birthday year begins
scratching at my shadow
extracting rose-colored salts.
My bones amplify light.
I vibrate with subtle harmonies.
I become soft, malleable,lustrous,
seared, finished in heat,
a quantum woman.
PHOLARCOS TAROT--XV--The Devil--Dance with your shadow till it transforms into the riches of your being.
Author's Note: The poetic form is the Erbium--element 68 in the Periodic Table. Created by me for my 68th birthday. It consists of 68 syllables.
Today is a walkabout
in familiar spaces.
All those I meet
are crooked saints
with rusted halos,
of a dying planet
to make a life.
Herbcrafter's Tarot--Five of Earth--Slippery Elm--Soothe the pain of those in need. Even the wounded can heal.
